RoSPA has revamped its child car seats website which gives advice to parents and carers on the safest way for children to travel in cars.
The website receives around 4,500 visits every day and is a trusted source of safety information for anyone needing advice about child car restraints. The re-design was funded by the DfT.
The revamped site provides up-to-date information on the types of child car seats available, including seats that are fitted with the car’s seatbelts, Isofix seats, which have fitting points built into the car, and i-Size seats which meet a new child car seat regulation.
The website also provides advice on which seat to choose for your child and car and how to use them, the law and things drivers ought to know if they carry other people’s children in the car. The site is designed to be mobile-friendly and easy to navigate.
Kevin Clinton, RoSPA’s head of road safety, said: “The website is essential reading for parents, carers or grandparents whether they are choosing a baby’s first child car seat or are looking to move toddlers or older children from one seat to another.
“The importance of properly fitting a child seat cannot be over stated. We encourage parents to check that the seat is fitted correctly before every journey, especially if they are regularly taking it in and out of the car.”
